One week from today I will be pulling my last all-nighter of my undergraduate career, and I have a long, long, long way to go to reach my goal of 1000$ Any amount of money helps, if you’d be willing to donate to my relay for life page I’d greatly appreciate it:
I am writing to you to ask for your support as I tackle my final Relay for Life as an undergraduate student at Kent State University. For those of you who don’t know Relay for life is an incredibly important philanthropic event to me and my family. On March 24th, 2 years ago we lost my father, Ron to Pancreatic Cancer, additionally cancer has touched my family in the fact that my Aunt Grace is a Breast Cancer survivor. I relay for them.
That said I can’t relay without help. This year I have set an incredibly lofty goal of raising 1,000 dollars for the American Cancer Society individually. I am hoping that I can get 100 people to donate just ten dollars each, when broken down like that it does not seem nearly as difficult a task to achieve (that said, larger donations are most definitely appreciated as well.) The American Cancer Society is a cause that I truly appreciate more than anything else. For those who don’t know what Relay for Life is, it is an event in which participants join a team a member of which is walking around a track for 24 hours straight, and throughout those 24 hours team members stay at this track to celebrate the lives, to remember, and to fight against cancer. This will be my 5th relay for life, and I truly want to make it memorable. I plan on not sleeping at all, and truly embodying the phrase ‘Cancer doesn’t sleep, why should I?’
If you would like to Donate to my cause please click the link below, there are two options to donate to me:
The first is to click the button that says donate now.
The second option is to click dedicate a Luminaria, in the evening of the event the track is lined by luminaria’s depicting the names of loved ones, both who have survived cancer, and those who have not, these bags are part of a very touching ceremony, and if you message me and let me know you’ve purchased a luminaria to help my cause I would be happy to pick it up for you and send it to you.
You can also choose to donate anonymously.
Thank you so much,
